I.m contemplating getting into the digital realm - I.ve been reading a lot about the DVX [or HVX - haven.t decided yet], and am fairly convinced I can get the "film look" with proper lighting and the 35mm lens adapter [any recomendations??? - I prefer static as opposed to oscillating ones...but none that flip the image upside down]. What concerns me, is that most of the footage I see uploaded on the web is static images of flowers, or sunsets etc. from people.s reels....this is not the kind of move I shoot...I do a lot of walking and talking [think early Woody Allen] - does anyone have any DVX [or HVX] footage like this? I want to make sure this camera is up to the job and can make a dialogue film look "film-ic" and not just random images/music videos.

Thanks,
Mark.

Hye here is a smaple of dvx100 used for a movie..the sample is lower in quility and I dont know why the blacks when compressed look milky and color sat goes down but still is an idea of diferent uses.
All made with minimun lights.

O not Color timing in this...beside the lo con lo sat of the compressor for web page..
I have different stuff but this I felt was more in the line of what you were asking. Not 35mm adapter anything even do I would have liked to use it.
These are just shots not actual cut scenes.
